We recommend a series of Peri-operative Massage Therapy treatments following each of our plastic surgical procedures to hasten our patient’s recovery process. Peri-operative Therapy is a revolutionary manual technique that reduces recovery time, alleviates pain, eliminates swelling and bruising, softens scar tissue and smoothes out lumps and bumps. We have been pleased to discover that this modified touch therapy technique also relieves post-operative depression and anxiety, increases our patient’s ability to sleep, enhances circulation and helps the body repair itself following a cosmetic surgery procedure.
Peri-operative Therapy helps to chart out the path of recovery, so that the conscious and the physical aspects of the body can heal in unison. Our therapist, Pam Peppard, educates each patient on proper ways to exercise, stretch, and be aware of postural problems associated with their surgical procedures.
Pam is expertly trained specifically to treat plastic surgery patients. We have set aside a dedicated room especially for Peri-operative Therapy. In it you will find a comfortable massage table layered in inviting warm sheets and blankets. Soothing water sounds and relaxing music help to set the scene for healing and relaxation.
We recommend one-to-five treatments depending on the type of cosmetic surgery procedure you choose to undergo. In addition, many of our patients who have received Peri-operative Therapy, following their plastic surgery procedure, have chosen to continue receiving peri-operative massage therapy appointments through their recovery process to improve their healing and overall well being. These additional follow up appointments can be booked through our patient coordinators. Peri-operative Therapy is another way we pride ourselves on taking an innovative approach to plastic surgery.
“There is no question that therapeutic and lymphatic massage can be helpful in the peri-operative period. Our patients' experience with peri-operative massage therapy has been fantastic. I definitely recommend this services for all of my cosmetic surgery patients.” - Nick Slenkovich, M.D.
